Haji Mohamed Dawjee is the deputy digital news editor and a columnist at the Mail & Guardian. Unable to put her degree in music to better use because of stage fright (she maintains), she obtained an honours degree in journalism from the University of Stellenbosch. She now spends her time in the newsroom trying to figure out how to give readers multi-platform story experiences. Besides diversifying the M&G's digital content, Haji also throws together a weekly column, which receives a bit of engagement and no awards. She's a little funny, slightly quirky and she smells good most of the time. Pigeons are her kryptonite and she shoots apostrophes. In her previous incarnation as social media editor at the M&G, she was featured on BBC Radio, Al-Jazeera and the Huffington Post Live.
